|The trig pillar on a superb winter day|
The name Ingleborough is derived from the Old English word 'burh' meaning 'a fortified place'. This is thanks to the evidence of an old Iron Age settlement that resides on the summit.
The summit is home to an OS trig pillar and a large, Victorian windshelter and has excellent views thanks to the location of Ingleborough as it pokes out into the valley.
